Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Year One and Of Blood and Bone concludes her stunning new trilogy praised as “A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King’s The Stand.”

After the sickness known as the Doom destroyed civilization, magick has become commonplace, and Fallon Swift has spent her young years learning its ways. Fallon cannot live in peace until she frees those who have been preyed upon by the government or the fanatical Purity Warriors, endlessly hunted or locked up in laboratories, brutalized for years on end. She is determined to save even those who have been complicit with this evil out of fear or weakness—if, indeed, they can be saved.

Strengthened by the bond she shares with her fellow warrior, Duncan, Fallon has already succeeded in rescuing countless shifters and elves and ordinary humans. Now she must help them heal—and rediscover the light and faith within themselves. For although from the time of her birth, she has been The One, she is still only one. And as she faces down an old nemesis, sets her sights on the enemy’s stronghold, and pursues her destiny—to finally restore the mystical shield that once protected them all—she will need an army behind her…

They survived the first battle, but the war continues. Fallon Swift has known she was foretold as the One who would lead the world to healing after its fall from the sickness named the Doom and the surge of magic. Now, as the Purity Warriors continue to destroy anything different and the government tortures those with gifts in search of their own power, Fallon brings the fight to Washington, DC. She works to heal the rifts between ordinary and extraordinary, so the world can begin to find peace. Ironically, Fallon will need an army; she can't finish this fight alone. In the process she will have to face family, both good and bad, and the path of her own heart. Characters will come full circle, leaving no loose ends in this fast-moving, robust story. VERDICT The final volume of "The Chronicles of the One" (Of Blood and Bone; Year One) is a full fantasy, postapocalyptic version of Roberts's tried and true storytelling mastery.

From the Publisher

"[Julia] Whelan's ability to portray a large cast of characters, giving each a unique voice, is laudable. Each character is discernible from the rest—no matter their gender, age, or regional accent. Her soothing tone and even pacing keep the lengthy story moving for the listener. Overall, Whelan deftly presents another production worth listening to." —AudioFile Magazine
